Since 1994 Digital Hollywood (DH) has been a leading provider of tertiary digital content education in Japan, specializing in particular in web design, graphic design, computer graphics, visual effects, programming and Japanese animation. Many of DH’s vocational school graduates have gone on to have prominent developing careers in leading Japanese and international content firms. During 2004 and 2005, with the approval of the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) DH established full graduate and undergraduate programs in digital content and now around 980 undergraduate and 196 graduate students are undertaking specialist studies. The university initiatives were made possible through the strong support that DH was able to draw upon from the Japanese content industry and a key principle of our curriculum remains utilizing leading industry professionals and commentators as instructors.
DHU is located in Kanda-Surugadai, Ochanomizu where has been the center of education and research and accommodates several universities. Akihabara, Tokyo’s world famous electric town, is within easy walking distance from the campus. Akihabara has many specialized stores, electronics department stores, and theme restaurants (maid cafes) offering the broad range of Japanese popular contents such as Anime, Game, Manga and Fashion which is what made Akihabara world-famous. Residents and visitors continuously discover the blending of the traditional Japanese culture with the dynamic trend of Japanese sub-culture, making Akihabara a truly special place.
This city regarded as a place must-visit has gracefully outgrown "Electronics district" to “Japanese pop culture hub”. Yet in the face of its ongoing evolution, Akihabara always manages to retain its charm and excitement in spades. Having campus in Akihabara located in the center of Tokyo encourages you to spend a learning time in a related environment that gives you a hands-on experience on-the-spot. We hope you enjoy all Akihabara has to offer.
